Conor Kostick was a designer for the world’s first live fantasy role-playing game, based in Peckforton Castle, Cheshire. He lives in Dublin where, having completed a P. on the subject of the crusades, he now teaches medieval history at Trinity College Dublin.

Edda by Conor Kostick is the third book in the sci-fi/fantasy Epic series. I could say Edda is the last novel in Conor Kostick's Epic-Trilogy and in my opinion by far the worst. It takes place in a future where humans have created virtual realities with enough depth to give some of the virtual inhabitants of the games free will. In the first book, Epic, the community of New Earth, a colony of humans that evacuated the Earth, used the game Epic to settle who got what in the real world. The storyline merges Ghost and her friends from Saga with Eric aka Cindella and some other humans to explore a portal found in Saga, which leads to another world.

When your whole world is virtual, what is reality?

Everyone in the universe of Edda is made of pixels—except for Penelope. While her body is kept alive in a hospital bed, her avatar runs free, able to go anywhere and do anything, including create deadly weapons for Edda’s ruler, her guardian Lord Scanthax. When Scanthax decides to invade another virtual world, Erik/Cindella from Epic and Ghost from Saga become part of the story—and soon the virtual universes are alive with fighting, alight with bombs, and brought together by three teenagers who want peace and understanding.

With its blend of action, technology, subversion, and politics, Conor Kostick’s Epic Trilogy is the next best thing to gaming.

Reviews about Edda (7):
I'm a huge fan of the first two books in this trilogy, so I was thrilled when I was able to finally get a hold of this one. The story gives us a chance to look back at the characters from previous books (Cindella, Ghost, Milan, etc.) as well as new characters. The main new character, Penelope, is human, but has grown up in the game world instead of out in the real world.

This book is sort of a tying-together of all the threads from the other books. We found out how the various game worlds intersect, what has happened to humans and game characters in other worlds, and all the characters' story lines are brought to a fairly satisfying conclusion. It is a rather too neat wrap-up, but it's sort of nice to have that satisfying ending occasionally.

The main reason I gave this four instead of five stars like the other books is that I think I missed the one-character focus that the first two had. As much as I enjoyed seeing Cindella and Ghost again, they weren't in that stage of self-discovery that they were experiencing in their own books. And I think that's what I really enjoyed about those books. Penelope is going through that, but we only get about half (and possibly less) of the book with her; I actually wanted more of her storyline/for her to have more of the action.

Still, it's very well-written and an enjoyable, fast read. I admittedly ended up putting off some other books I was reading when I got this because I couldn't put this one down. I think it's focused more toward YA, but it's one of those YA books that adults can enjoy reading as well.

(And if you haven't read the first two, while you could probably read this one on its own, you really should read Epic and Saga first, both for a better understanding of what's going on and just because they're awesome. I loved both of them!).
I really liked this trilogy. Fun adventure, and great story telling to go along with likable characters in an interesting sci-fi universe.
Great book great present
great sequel!
My eleven year old grandson has read this series and has recommended it to fellow students in his reading group. I would recommend they be purchased in order and read the same.
Brick my own
The previous two books were much better. They fully developed the characters and environments, while this one skipped that part.
Book in great condition.
